DeAngelo Williams questionable for Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams missed Thursday and Friday's practices and is officially considered questionable for Week 2 against the Lions Sunday with a thigh injury.

Williams participated in Wednesday's practice, but was held out Thursday and Friday. His only work Friday came when he ran in the pool.

"I'm concerned," Panthers coach Ron Rivera told the Charlotte Observer. "Again he's a running back and he's got to rely on that burst. And based on the way he ran today, we're going to have to see how he is tomorrow morning. If he's just the slightest bit hampered by it. We'll have to see. It's the burst that you're always worried about."

DeAngelo Williams rushes for 72 yards in Week 1 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams had a productive showing despite not being asked to do much in a Week 1 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Williams had nine handoffs that resulted in five-plus yards, including a 17-yard dash in the fourth quarter, his longest gain of the afternoon. He finished the game with 14 carries for 72 yards on the ground, averaging 5.1 yards per attempt in a 20-14 victory. He was targeted once and was held without a grab.

Williams will be seeking his first touchdown of the season at home Week 2 against the Lions.

DeAngelo Williams not worth considering in standard formats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has scored nine career touchdowns against the Buccaneers, by far the most he’s had against any opponent in the league. He’ll be looking to add to that total come Week 1 at Tampa Bay.

Williams has rushed for 55.2 yards on the ground in 13 meetings and has caught 16 passes against the Buccaneers, tied for his second-most against any other team in the league. However, most of Williams’ production came in his early years with the Panthers. In fact, he has been limited to nine touches or fewer in each of his last four meetings against Tampa Bay.

At this point even as a starter, Williams will likely share his workload with Jonathan Stewart and could even lose goal-line touches to Mike Tolbert. Fantasy owners should only consider starting Williams in deeper leagues.

Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams make little noise vs. Pats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams barely made any noise Friday night against the Patriots in Foxboro.

Stewart caught a short pass from Cam Newton and found an opening for a 20-yard gain in the first quarter. It was his only grab of the night. He took four handoffs for 11 yards. Williams was not targeted in the passing game and finished with nine rushing yards on five carries, averaging only 1.8 yards per attempt.

Frustrated DeAngelo Williams questions Panthers' offseason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will stand with his team through thick and thin but admitted to NFL Network on Thursday that he's concerned about their future after letting their top four receivers go this offseason. Williams said he'll miss the leadership of Steve Smith and the entire receiving corps' knowledge of the offense but is fearful for what might happen to the Panthers run game. 

"I just don't want to see eight, nine guys in the box week in and week out because we're working on our timing," Williams said. 

With Cam Newton on the shelf until training camp and the Panthers fielding a new receiving corps, the clock is ticking on Carolina's offense getting on the same page. 


LaCanfora: Panthers could cut DeAngelo Williams


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) The Panthers could part ways with running back DeAngelo Williams this offseason, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that Williams has a cap hit of $6 million, and the Panthers could save $2 million in cap space if they cut Williams. Carolina still has Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert under contract.

Williams had 201 carries for 843 yards and three touchdowns and 26 catches for 333 yards and a touchdown in 2013


Panthers rushers can't get anything going


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) The Panthers rushers couldn't get anything going against San Francisco.

Mike Tolbert was the most effective of the bunch, picking up 20 yards on eight carries. Tolbert has been a short-yardage threat all season, but could not convert his chances during the game. DeAngelo Williams was used even less, with just five carries. He finished with 13 yards. Neither played a role in the passing game.


Fumble ruins day for DeAngelo Williams


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams played well in Week 17 at Atlanta, but a fumble put a damper on his overall production.

Williams had 10 carries for 33 yards and two catches for 75 yards. But on his 56-yard reception, Williams lost a fumble at the end of the run.

The Panthers now have a week off after winning the NFC South and wrapping up the No. 2 seed in the NFC. They will next play in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.


DeAngelo Williams ending season on high note


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/26/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams heads into his Week 17 matchup at Atlanta playing well, and we expect him to end the regular season on a high note.

Since Jonathan Stewart (knee) went down in Week 14 we’ve seen Williams take over. He has 34 Fantasy points in his past two games against the Jets and New Orleans with a touchdown in each game. This is the second year in a row Williams is closing the season strong since he scored at least 11 Fantasy points in three of his final four games in 2012.

Williams struggled against the Falcons in Week 9 with 13 carries for 42 yards and two catches for 12 yards when Stewart was active, but he scored in the three previous meetings with Atlanta. And the Falcons have allowed a running back to score or rush for 90 yards in nine games in a row.

We consider Williams a solid No. 2 Fantasy running back this week. If he continues to play like he has the past two games he will reward Fantasy owners with another solid performance.


DeAngelo Williams finds the end zone Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams managed to find the end zone Week 16.

Williams didn't do much with 11 of his carries, but broke off a big 43 yard run in the second quarter. He finished with 12 carries for 67 yards. Williams also caught one pass, but did not gain any yards. Williams will take on the Falcons Week 17.


DeAngelo Williams an average play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is an average play Week 16 against the Saints.

New Orleans has been about league-average against opposing runners, allowing them to average 16.43 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has given up 10 rushing touchdowns. When the two teams met earlier in the year, Williams rushed for 52 yards on 13 carries. 

Williams continues to get the most work on the team, but Mike Tolbert has been a constant thorn in his side. When the team gets near the goal line, Tolbert gets the majority of the work. Due to the lack of touches at the goal line, Williams is probably not a strong Fantasy play Week 16 against the Saints.


DeAngelo Williams comes down with first TD reception


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams turned in another dominant performance as he scored his first receiving touchdown of the season Sunday against the Jets in Week 15.

Williams caught a short screen pass from Cam Newton and worked his way down the sidelines for a 72-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He finished the game with 168 yards of total offense, logging 81 yards on 15 carries (5.4 yards per carry) and 87 yards on three receptions with one touchdown in a 30-20 victory.

Williams has rushed for 133 yards on 28 carries (4.8 yards per carry) over his last two games. He'll look to keep rolling at home in a difficult matchup against the Saints in Week 16. He was limited to only 52 yards on the ground against the Saints in Week 14.

DeAngelo Williams could be held in check vs. Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) With Jonathan Stewart sidelined with an injury, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will look to shoulder the load heading into Week 15 at home against the Jets.

Williams rushed for 52 yards on 13 carries in Week 14 against the Saints. He has been held out of the end zone over his last three games and has been held under 55 yards in each of his last seven games.

Williams may not have any luck this week, especially since he'll face a New York defense that has allowed only 82.6 yards per game on the ground, which is the second fewest allowed this season. Consider him a low-end starting option for Week 15.

DeAngelo Williams returns to lead Panthers in rushing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who missed Week 13 with a quad injury, led the team with 13 carries for 52 yards in the loss at New Orleans. It was the most carries he'd received since getting 13 vs. Atlanta in Week 9.

Williams was targeted twice, catching an 11-yard pass. He'll play the Jets in Week 15.


Panthers' running backs ready to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) are active for the game at New Orleans after being listed as probable on the injury report. They’ll split carries in Carolina’s run-heavy attack.

DeAngelo Williams gets the start Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will start Week 14 against the Saints. 

Williams has been battling a quadriceps injury this week, but was upgraded to full practice Friday. Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert are also probable, so Williams should see his usual workload. 


The Panthers best running back in Week 14 will be ...


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/6/2013) The Panthers head into Week 14 at New Orleans with all three of their running backs expected to be healthy in Mike Tolbert, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. But can you trust any of them in the Fantasy playoffs?

Williams missed Week 13 against Tampa Bay with a quad injury, but he's expected to return against the Saints. And Stewart, despite missing practice time this week with an ankle injury, is also expected to face New Orleans. Of the three, Tolbert is the only running back for the Panthers to consider in Fantasy play. The other two are just too inconsistent to trust.

Tolbert has scored at least eight Fantasy points four times in his past seven games. Stewart has struggled since making his debut in Week 9 with six Fantasy points or less the past five games. And Williams has six Fantasy points combined in his past two games.

Now, all three running backs have a good history against New Orleans, and the Saints have allowed nine touchdowns to running backs this season and nine to reach double digits in Fantasy points. But Tolbert would have the best chance to score of this trio, and he should be considered a flex option.

Consider Williams and Stewart just options in deeper leagues, but we'd bench them in Week 14 if possible.


DeAngelo Williams limited Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams was limited in practice Thursday.

Williams has been dealing with a quadriceps injury, but was able to play through it Week 13. Jonathan Stewart was held out Thursday, so the team is dealing with two injured backs at the moment.
